I am smarter than a fifth grader!

The day after receiving this book, I saw Robin on the Today show and it really motivated me to read the book. Her appearance on that show made it seem like the book would have a lot of new information that I hadn’t heard of before. Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ve heard all the advice in this book already. I’m in my twenties, and figured this would give me a head start on aging gracefully. Wrong. It’s all about herself and her journey – which would be great if her life was unique. She had a kid and gained some weight. She dieted and exercised to lose that weight. duh!

What really irks me is that she talks down to the reader in the whole book. For example, she says that she takes supplements to combat osteoporosis, and then goes on to define the disease for you. If you’re over 40 (the target audience) and haven’t heard the word osteoporosis, change doctors, buy a computer, get out of the house, and do something different.

Overall, I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone, though I did pass it on in a chick lit book swap. If you don’t know about age afflicted diseases, taking care of yourself, eating healthy, and managing your life than maybe this book is for you.

    I should hope people know what osteoporosis is at this point. Even my 7 year old knows!
